Autumn Resist!!


Here is the other card that got chosen as a VSN favourite!! The challenge was to use the resist technique on your card. Now the picture is a little crooked because my time was running out to get it uploaded to the gallery, my camera gave out and I hade to run downstairs to get the other camera, then my desktop computer was giving me trouble so I had to fire up the laptop and upload it there!! And I don't have PhotoShop on my laptop to make my picture all straight and cropped properly!! BUT I still won...heehee!!

Anyway, I love this new set by SU called Autumn Harvest. I love it's sketchy design and knew it would be perfect with the crayon resist technique. So I stamped the images on Glossy white cardstock. First I stamped them using my Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink, which you know is my favourite. BUT it didn't dry fast enough and started to smear when I used my white crayon on it. SO I did another piece using Black Stazon ink and it dried much quicker. I went in with my white crayon and highlighted a few spots on each of the images. Then I took the four ink colours that I had chosen ahead of time and using sponge daubers, I rubbed the ink straight onto the cardstock in a circular motion. The colours I used are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa and Elegant Eggplant. I trimmed it down, matted it on Basic Black then I stamped a few of the leaves and acorns on the card base, added some ribbon, Prima flowers and the sentiment which is by Inkadinkado. The sketch is also one of Beate's weekly sketches!

Hope you are having a lovely fall weekend. If you have time to stamp today, you can still enter my Kimmie's Challenge #1 and tomorrow I will post the random winner and a new challenge!!
